Efterklang

Springer CD

Before Tripper, Efterklang's honored and acclaimed first album, they released Springer in 2003 on their own tiny Rumraket label. Those who were enchanted by the beauty and majesty of Tripper will find Leaf's reissue of Springer no less an astounding display of maximal impact from minimal input. Created with computer equipment recording live instruments, yet sounding as if a full-bodied orchestra has approached the microphones-- much like Mum, Kronos Quartet, My Bloody Valentine and Sigur Ros.
 
Efterklang's EP draws on its classical leanings for gripping drama. The songs are composed with emotional glissandos and pocket symphonics fueled by powerful dual male and female vocals.
 
Efterklang have already begun work on their next release, but for now, Leaf makes Springer available in the States for the first time.
 
Copenhagen 10-piece Efterklang evoke a combination of Iceland's autistic-rockers Sigur Ros and the surgical assault of latter-period Aphex Twin. Mixing orchestral instruments, choir and electronic racket, Efterklang are a sonic revelation. --Orlando Weekly
